As we all know, it comes along once a year.
Loving and giving and enjoying life are usually the ‘flavour of the month’
Then after the seasonal celebrations are over there’s a quiet peaceful laid back time
and that’s what I’m looking forward to
If all goes to plan I’ll be…..well I’ve no idea what I’ll be doing
I/we have no special plans made…..we’re just going to take it as it comes
Because after all, it’s Summer
and that’s what you do in quiet peaceful laid back times
I seem to have spent a lot of time recently ‘in the past’ thinking about my life
as well those of my Irish and Scottish ancestors
which I’m putting down to ‘my age’
That’s me thinking like my mother
Her answer to lots of unexplained things women did was often
“it’s her age, it does strange things to people”
Anyway it’s left me feeling rather emotional
At the moment I’m also feeling a bit tired and weary
(Yes, The Golfer shared and it got me in the end)
Maybe not with the same force but enough to knock me out for many days
So I think this is the right time
to push the seasonal pause button.
As in all the years past I’ve really enjoyed your company (and comments).
Still have some of those going into spam though – sorry Jane & Cathy – not sure why
Merry Christmas – Much love to you all – See you in the New Year

And now if you’re up for it, here’s a little bit of fun for you
Make yourself a cuppa and enjoy some toe tapping time
( a shortened/abridged version of)
Jimmy Shand’s Christmas Party 1986 from Letham Village Hall (with Bill McCue)
(sorry about the bit at the beginning)
~ ~ ~ ~
This is a full remastered version of the same event
Which includes a performance by Jean Redpath
plus two extra ‘dances’ at the beginning.
(It’s sharp and clear but seems to have lost some of the ‘warmth’ of the one above)
Wouldn’t it be great if they still had nights like this in the local hall
Today is the last time to link to Wednesday’s Words & Pics hosted by Denyse.
She and others will be back in the New Year though
